Personally, dudes grown on me... I actually think he's the best around now.

    Is there an option for not really caring? His instigating is annoying, but I don't hate him.

    Hells yea. He's an instigator, dude brings it in the interviews.
    I like him because he's always rustling jimmies and he doesn't pussyfoot around in interviews. If your a journalist your supposed to ask the tough questions.

    I don't mind him. His trolling is funny.

    I pretty much hated him at first... but he just grew on me over time.

    Jon Anik on the other hand.... I liked him when he was on ESPN, now I can't stand him at all.

    Best reporter in the game. Just because he doesn't ask the same 3 questions as every other reporter people get on him for instigating. He asks questions that are more relevant and interesting.

    I saw a epiq1n in the Xbox one section on Reddit today. He said the eqiq1n here is his buddy that stole his name to mess with him.

    I like the drama he creates and the **** he gets for it creates some funny moments like when Rampage was getting ready to beat his **** but I couldn't really say I like him.

    It's so cool that my partnership with my best friend and lover Antawn can be recognized as a marriage! DOMA is unconstitutional!

    He is like a light switch but for the most part he is fake.
    When he burst onto the scene he came across as not knowing anything about the sport,much like Lansberg on TSN knows nothing about any sports.
    Ariel can come across as sincere and caring ,but in reality he is leading up to no good.he is always trying to cause **** to give him something to tweet back n forth between fighters.Perfect example is Rory McDonald,he tried his hardest to get Rory to trash talk with Penn,then again with Jake Ellenburger.He is constantly asking how he thinks about this comment or that comment.Rory is a calm respectable person,quit trying to turn him into a Sonnen or Diaz dirt bag.

    It is not just Rory,MANY of the fighters don't like Ariel because he tries to cause ****.The ONLY time i really like Ariel is when he gets under Dana's skin but then he cowers badly when Dana gets mad at him.

    I like that he asks more tough questions then most reporters. I don't like that he acts like a pansy every time anyone is even slightly annoyed with him. He's too easily intimidated and he's only slightly more controversial then most reporters but not enough to be a instigator.

    He and Ben Fowlkes are both ok, but they are also both kinda douchey. I think MMA reporting will jump up several levels at some point when someone awesome comes along.

    I remember when he was a nobody until he interview'd Bob Arum and the whole MMA community erupted when he made those ridiculous claims about how the UFC is nothing but skinhead homosexuals fighting. He seems to be doing well so he's okay in my books.

    I think he's what the sport needs in terms of getting the answers out to the mma fans, he doesn't care about asking the questions nobody else will.
